We all want to make changes in our life. We want to be less insecure, less fearful, less angry, less depressed, etc. And we want to be more confident, courageous, happy, creative and so forth. But we find it difficult to make these changes and to bring about these new versions of ourself that we long for.

The practice of meditation, combined with Buddha’s insights on the psychology of transformation, will enable us to release our self-limiting views and give us the confidence and skill to make these life-enhancing changes. Through a talk, guided meditation, and answers to your questions, France will help us to experience the methods through which we can joyfully bring about real changes swiftly and effectively.

GENERAL CLASS STRUCTURE:
- Simple guided breathing / relaxation meditation (20-25 minutes).
- Practical teaching on developing confidence (40-45 minutes).

Is love without pain possible? Love is supposed to give rise to our greatest happiness but all too often it seems to lead to pain and suffering. Confusingly it is as if that which brings us the most happiness also brings us the most intense and deep sorrow. According to Buddha, the confusion arises because we fail to distinguish between authentic love and the deluded mind of attachment. Love is the source of happiness. The pain in our relationships arise from our attachment.

In this public talk we will learn to approach our love for partner, family and friends from a fresh, new perspective. We will learn to discriminate clearly between love and attachment. This insight will allow us to use our relationships to train in diminishing attachment and increasing love. In this way our relationships will become not only more harmonious and joyful, but also they will become an integral and vital component of our spiritual path to enlightenment.
